    Pros

    Interesting classified projects, good salaries and benefits

    Cons

    Academy Mafia...Cookie-cutter, white, conservative, Christian-Zealot environment. Co-workers were unfriendly, withheld pertinent information, tried to upstage other members of the team in Senior-Level meetings and openly touted their religious beliefs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your PM's under tighter control. Working in a SCIF, does not excuse inappropriate behavior.

    Former Employee - Software Test Engineer in Stafford, VA (US)

    I worked at TASC full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    A great place to work, provides ongoing training in many technical and business topic areas. Very good benefits, flexible work schedule. A well-respected company in the DoD and DHS sectors. Very professional work environment that promotes high ethical standards.

    Cons

    None that pertain to employer-employee relationship. I was there one year two months and did not experience much of any negative situations. Only thing to complain about was there corporate policy on PCs was tightly locked down. Not what most software developers want to have. I ended up having to carry around two laptops - one for corporate connectivity that was locked down and another open laptop for my daily work that I could install my favorite (paid and licensed) development tools on.

    Pros

    I enjoy working for a company that helps people when they are in a difficult situation.

    Cons

    You may encounter people that just don't want to be bothered no matter what it is that you our offering. Sometimes people are very mean, rude, and disrespectful and that saddens me.

    I worked at TASC

    Pros

    None except that they overpay for the way they dumb-down every position.

    Cons

    Everything. Thoroughly unprofessional atmosphere. It's like a time-warp back to high school mentality. If you have a brain - you'll feel like you got a lobotomy going here. If you don't have a brain - you'll fit in with the majority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage and don't just input false time and take a paycheck. Don't use deceptive unprofessional practices to turn employees against one another. Spend more time managing and little less updating your resume and complaining about how much you hate all the idiots there. That would give some appearance of professionalism.
